I'm 21, I have a 2yr old little man, my partner (his dad) and I have been together 4.5 years and he also has a 4yr old son from his previous relationship.
I work full time 38hrs a week and earn $10 more an hour than him, who only works about 20hrs a week. All my money goes to bills and he just "chucks in". He smokes pot but lies to me about how much. When I catch him out he says it's a rare thing and keeps lying.
For the last 2 years he has been "hiding" girls. As in, he will be texting girls but putting them under his male friends names. He also private messages them on Facebook etc. last weekend he went out with his little brother and got drunk and started messaging another girl saying "I hope I didn't make u feel awkward I was really drunk" when I asked him how much he drank he said he wasn't drinking and denied knowing her. This was just a few hours after telling me how much he is trying as we are both under alot of financial stress right now. I dont trust him and he knows it.
I'm sick of him and everyone else having so much fun and getting everything they want when I work harder than the people I know, earn a little more and still have nothing to show because I have to pick up everyones slack because they choose to either drink, smoke etc their money away.
What do I do?
I can't afford Childcare full time. So my partner watches my son 3 days a week. I can't afford the rent we pay and it's the same if not double everywhere else in this city.
